    We are going on our 2nd Disney cruise in December. My daughter (7) and I would love to do the deep water dolphin encounter. Do you have to be an expert swimmer? Do they have life jackets? Help!!!😩

    Ahoy LaKeshia –

    Welcome back Castaway Club Silver Member! We are so happy to have you with us, LaKeshia, and thanks for thinking about us for help with your cruise planning. You are so brave to do the Atlantis Dolphin Cay Deep Water Dolphin Interaction with your princess, and do not worry, you both will have so much fun! After a ride on a motor coach to the Atlantis Resort, you and your pirate princess will get lockers, a wetsuit, snorkel gear and flotation vests to wear in order to prepare for your close-up time with the dolphins.

    You do not need to be an expert swimmer, in fact, children are required to wear a life vest (flotation devices are available for adults as well). After having fun with the dolphins, you and your sea pup can explore the Dig, which is an incredible aquarium, as well as the amazing shops inside the Atlantis Resort. Thanks for coming to visit with us Lakeshia, and please come back to “sea” us if you need more help!
